An estimated 1,200 Komodos live on the island, part of a national park of the same name, and seven are known to be living near where the boy was killed.
They say the dragons, which grow up to three metres long, go wherever they smell meat and there are no guarantees they won't approach villages again,.
Police say they assume the boy's killer is among the group that is being moved.
